While Halloween may not be the film we all asked for, but it sounds like they have all the right pieces in place to make a decent movie. Now, you can add one more promising aspect to the list of reasons why this could work.
There have been rumors surrounding writer-director-composer of the first Halloween, John Carpenter, coming back to help out with the score. Now, in an interview with Billboard, when asked to specify his involvement in the project, he said:
“I am an executive producer and it looks clear to me that I’ve made a deal to do the music.”
That’s fantastic to hear, as Carpenter’s original composition has gone on to be incredibly iconic. But what does that mean for the score coming up? Do they plan on changing it, reinventing it, or something else altogether?
On that, Carpenter said:
“There are many options. I’ll be consulting with the director to see what he feels. I could create a new score, we could update the old score and amplify it, or we could combine those two things. I’ll have to see the movie to see what it requires.”
From all we’ve heard, Danny McBride’s script is fantastic (yes, that THAT Danny McBride), and with David Gordon Green at the helm, it seems like a potentially great combo.
Additionally, with Jamie Lee Curtis back, and now Carpenter confirmed, it sounds like this could be the film Halloween fans deserve.
